[ cheers and applause ] >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- john oliver, from "saturday night live", actress aidy bryant, cooking cheeseburgers with chef april bloomfield, featuring the 8g band with jaleel bunton. [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers! [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, everybody. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] fantastic to hear. let's get to the news. the new hampshire primary was today and in dixville notch, the first town to complete voting, republican candidate john kasich won, beating donald trump by just one vote. honestly, i'm kinda surprised trump didn't win in a place
[ laughter and applause ] jeb bush was caught on video yesterday throwing a snowball at an nbc reporter in new hampshire. though jeb says the snowball was just meant to represent his chances of winning. [ laughter ] a new poll out shows hillary clinton with just a three point lead over bernie sanders nationally. though she's actually up by 50 points if you go by blood pressure. [ laughter and applause ] chris christie, at a campaign stop yesterday, got down on one knee to try and woo an undecided voter. and by "woo" i mean that's the sound he made when he knelt down. [ light laughter ] woo! woo! woo! [ light laughter ] during a campaign stop, a new hampshire bar offered marco rubio what they called a marco rubio burger. it's called the marco rubio burger, because chris christie
[ laughter and applause ] following accusations that he has an overly rehearsed speaking style, marco rubio was chased to his campaign bus by a group of protesters dressed as robots and calling themselves marco roboto and the rubio talking point 3000. so one thing's for sure, unemployment is still a major problem. [ light laughter ] president obama today submitted his final budget proposal to congress before leaving office. here's a copy of it. [ laughter ] it takes a second. it takes a second. [ applause ] red lobster is reporting that its sales are up 33% from this time last year, following their mention in beyonce's new single, "formation." "yeah, it's been really busy in here lately," said kelly and michelle.
this year's oscars gift bag will reportedly contain a $300 credit towards personalized m&m candies. said matthew mcconaughey, "man i can't wait to get some with my initials on it. [ laughter ] finally. some m&m's with m and m." [ light laughter ] this year's oscars gift bag will also contain a $275 roll of toilet paper that comes in a gift box made from tender virgin new growth fibers. it's the toilet paper that's both by and for ass wipes. [ laughter ] lady and gentlemen we have a great slow for you tonight. he is the host of hbo's "last week tonight." our friend john oliver is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] so happy it to have him here. you know her from "snl." we're so happy to have her back. aidy bryant is on the show tonight. [ cheers and applause ] and we will be making double
with chef april bloomfield. [ cheers and applause ] so looking forward to all of that. but before we get to it, martin shkreli, the former ceo of turing pharmaceuticals, best known for increasing the price of a drug that treats hiv-related infections by 5,000%, has come under renewed scrutiny after appearing before congress last week. but as bad as shkreli is, the price gouging he's become famous for is just standard operating procedure throughout the rest of the pharmaceutical industry. for more on this it's time for "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: shkreli appeared before the house committee on oversight and government reform last week to answer questions about his company's decision to raise the price of the drug. but instead, he spent the time doing what he does best -- looking like a real slappable prick. [ laughter ] shkreli pled the fifth in response to virtually every question, angering the members of the committee.
anything wrong? >> on the advice of counsel, i invoke my fifth amendment privilege against self-incrimination and respectfully decline to answer your question. >> do you understand you can waive your fifth amendment right? >> on the advice of counsel, i invoke my fifth amendment privilege against self-incrimination and respectfully decline to answer your question. >> is it pronounced shkreli? >> yes, sir. >> see there, you can answer some questions. [ laughter ] >> seth: mr. chairman, i move that the witness be punched in his dumb smug face. [ laughter ] but things are about to get a lot more interesting. you see, last year the rap group wu-tang clan recorded a new album. they printed one copy of the album and sold it for $2 million to the highest bidder, which was shkreli. yet, in the hearing, shkreli was so cagey he wouldn't even confirm that. >> is it wu-tang clan? is that the name of the album, name of the group?
>> on the advice of counsel, i invoke my fifth amendment privilege against self-incrimination and respectfully decline to answer your question. >> seth: what was the lawyer saying to him? "i think it would be super funny if i pretend to whisper you advice, but then you just give the same answer you keep giving." [ laughter ] although, only congress would need to ask a witness, "is it wu-tang clan?" [ light laughter ] you know beforehand, someone said, "don't ask. just trust me, it's the wu-tang clan." but some old white dude was like, "it just doesn't sound right. i need confirmation." [ light laughter ] now if you think, "at least the wu-tang clan must like shkreli for paying $2 million for your album," you'd be wrong. wu-tang member, ghostface killah called shkreli a [ bleep ] head for raising the price of the drug. and then shkreli responded with a video of him and hooded goons demanding an apology from ghostface. well today, ghostface responded with a video of his own, that introduced his own, far superior goons, his mother and sister. >> you wicked boy. you wicked -- how was you raised?
>> do you have any morals? >> tell 'em mom. get him. >> oh, i can't believe you. >> seth: they made t-shirts. they're the best. [ laughter ] the best. but let's not get distracted from the real issue, which is shkreli's not alone. he's just doing what a lot of pharmaceutical companies already do, except he's being loud and conniving about it, while they're being secretive and conniving about it. in fact, the house oversight committee revealed an email from an unnamed pharmaceutical raise the price of the drug, not because it was wrong, but because, "the benefit is not worth the risk of getting yourself back in the news again." he's basically telling shkreli, don't draw attention to what we do. it's like when you pull a heist and tell everyone, don't spend the money right away and then shkreli goes out the next morning and spends $2 million on a wu-tang album. [ laughter ] but the problem with drug prices in america is much bigger than martin shkreli. he's a convenient deserving scapegoat. but americans pay way more for drugs across the board than other developed countries. take, for example, an acid
according to cnn, an insurer in the united states pays on average $215 per customer. yet the same prescription in the netherlands costs about one tenth, just $23. that is crazy. no one needs acid reflux drugs more than americans. [ laughter ] it should come as a side dish with the kfc double down. [ light laughter ] a major reason for these excessive prices is that unlike other countries, the u.s. government doesn't negotiate with drug companies. prices are set completely by the market. but there's also widespread gouging, just like what shkreli did. for example, last year a company called valeant pharmaceuticals bought the rights to a pair of life saving heart drugs. the same day their list prices rose by 525% and 212%. valeant didn't cause nearly as because they don't have a smug, irritating face. they have a soothing logo. if valiant's logo was this, you'd immediately think, what [ laughter ]
if congress really wanted to help, politicians on either side of the aisle would work together to pass laws and limit the ability to price gouge. but they can't do that, because they are trying to get more important information. >> is it wu-tang clan? [ light laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with john oliver! [ cheers and applause ] sfx: cell phone vibrates. yeah? (sigh) you're okay... he's okay, he made it! jason.. what do you mean? we were very bad boys. alexa what's in the news? alexa: here's the news, "alecbaldwin and jason schwartzman were seen mooning paparazzi.baldwin threw his shoe at photographers before making arun for it". my poor cashmere socks... alexa, will you order another pair of brescianis. reordering bresciani socks. okay listen...

[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back to "late night," everybody. back with us on drums tonight from tv on the radio, jaleel bunton is here. thank you so much for being here, jaleel. [ cheers and applause ] you can catch jaleel playing every monday night at union pool in brooklyn with reverend vince and the love choir. thank you very much for being here jaleel, and thank you so much for being here, 8g band. give it up for them as well. [ cheers and applause ] our first guest tonight is the host of the emmy and peabody award-winning hbo show, "last week tonight," which returns for its third season on sunday. please welcome back to the show, our friend, john oliver. [ cheers and applause ]
>> fine, thank you, my friend. >> seth: it's so happy to -- let's get started with the thing everybody wants us to talk about. >> sure. >> seth: the audience is -- they're on the edge of their seats because today -- >> there's a reason people have cued up outside in the cold. >> seth: yeah, they want to hear this conversation between you and in, which is our soccer -- our football team played each other today. >> sure. >> seth: you are a liverpool fan. i'm a west ham fan. >> correct. >> seth: they played this afternoon. >> uh-huh. >> seth: and my guys won. >> [ bleep ] you. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] okay. do you have more to say on it, or do you feel better now? >> i do have more to say but it will basically just be a longer way to say that. [ laughter ] >> seth: okay, gotcha. so that's the succinct way. >> and it'll be bleeped at home. [ laughter ] so i presume what i said was congratulations of some kind. >> seth, [ bleep ] you. [ laughter ] ] >> seth: that way -- i think the second follow up -- now, they' figure out. with the context now, they'll be you." >> sure, sure. yeah, yeah. >> seth: i think that -- [ laughter ] >> seth: but american football's super bowl on sunday. >> seth: is that something you is that -- >> of course. of course.
>> it's the greatest thing to happen to a television all year because in most of the sports, you know, the sport is the key appeal. and clearly, that's not the case with the super bowl. you can sit -- you are so jaded with what you do during the super bowl. americans just expect fighter jets and lady gaga now. [ laughter ] you expect that as a baseline of a supebowl. >> seth: yeah. >> if it's not gaga, it's someone of equivalent status. >> seth: mm-hmm. >> but that was a bad game. that was not -- >> seth: it was not good football. >> that was a bad football game. >> seth: yeah. >> and yet, it doesn't matter, does it? cause beyonce saves the day. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. so, you enjoyed the halftime show? >> of course, i did. well, i did. as a british person, i found the appearance of coldplay slightly excruciating. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> you think, "oh, gentlemen, no, you are not what is required here. [ laughter ] oh, no they're bringing out flowers. that's the opposite of the intent of this sport." >> seth: yeah. >> "these men like to smash into each other until they can remember nothing in their 60s. your flowers and messages of love are not appropriate, mr. martin."
i've never seen a super bowl halftime band leave the stage and just invite other bands on to take over. >> seth: yes. >> it was spectacular. "oh, and here's bruno mars. oh, good. here's bruno, and here's beyonce. even better. beyonce. where's coldplay gone?" and i thought -- there was a moment, i thought, "oh, that's really smart. just leave." [ laughter ] yeah. and then chris martin wedges his way between them, like, dad dancing his way between them. going, "yeah? me too, right? don't believe me, just watch. i like it. i'm funky. i get down with the funk as well." [ laughter ] he was -- he was in the middle. >> seth: yeah, he was. [ cheers and applause ] >> he wasn't in the middle, though. he was trying to take the power position. but when you're between beyonce and bruno mars, you just look like a guy in the back seat trying to -- [ laughter ] >> seth: oh yeah, like that. >> "me too. we're having fun as a three aren't we? [ laughter ] as an equivalent three." >> seth: i have to give
if they reach the level where they get the halftime show. >> yeah. >> seth: they wouldn't want to share the stage. >> sure. >> seth: but i feel like he's a laid back enough guy that he was, "yeah, great, the more the merrier." you from yourself here, chris." [ laughter ] "you can't close on yellow at the super bowl." >> seth: "clocks?" can i can close with "clocks"? but let bruno spice it up a little bit, to again, save you from yourself. >> seth: that's right. "yellow" is not super bowl focus. >> no one's gonna remember they played. >> seth: i -- >> it's just gonna be, "oh yeah. that time beyonce sang twice. she was amazing. she did two super bowls." >> seth: i was -- it was full sunlight as well, which is weird for a super bowl halftime show except when it's coldplay. >> yeah. >> seth: like coldplay seems like you want all the lights on. >> you may as well have the lights on. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. no one's ever like, "let's get down to coldplay, click." >> that's right. it was very much like sex with the lights on. [ laughter ] why not? let's just see. let's just have the full horror of what's unfolding there. [ laughter ] look, there are the amps they've
that's nice. [ laughter ] >> seth: now, there's no british sport where there's spectacle. there's no fighter jets. >> no, no, no. because we just watch the sport. [ laughter ] you just watch the sport, and then, you're happy or sad about that. you don't then invite the rolling stones and say, "let's take this up a notch." [ laughter ] >> seth: right. it's either good enough on the result, or it can't be saved. >> you don't watch the world cup and say, "wow, i can't remember who played, but i remember that jay-z was there!" [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> and that was fun. >> seth: you're right. well, now i feel -- i -- >> no, it's good. it's good. >> seth: okay. >> that's the thing. you don't realize, they'll have the second most spectacular sport event on earth is such a drop from the super bowl. >> seth: yeah. >> the super bowl's incredible. it doesn't -- it has transcended the sport. >> seth: yeah, absolutely. and i still -- the jets is the crazy -- the timing of the jets is the craziest thing. >> yeah. but again, you're all -- there's no surprise in anyone's -- [ laughter ] they go, yeah, of course, but they go across on time. they couldn't be late. it's the super bowl. [ laughter ] you don't understand how hard it is to time that out. >> seth: we're spoiled.
[ laughter ] >> seth: we're spoiled. we're very spoiled. >> that's right. >> seth: new hampshire primary today. >> yeah. >> seth: is this something that you pay attention to because you have a show on sunday? there'll be time for you to comment? >> well, i guess the thing i don't understand about new hampshire, no offense. >> seth: yes, my home state. >> is why the hell people care about the people of new hampshire so much. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. that's fair. >> all i've seen all week is politicians saying, "well, it's great to be here in new hampshire," which you feel is a lie. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> off the back. but then they say, "and i'll tell you what i love about the voters here. they're informed, they're educated, and they're involved." you think that's inadvertently a real slap in the face to everybody else in the country. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> "it's good to be here in new hampshire, not like those animals in arkansas." [ laughter ] >> seth: you can't explain anything to them. >> i don't get it. but it's in your blood, right. explain to me the kind of wizard-like qualities that you have as a new hampshire voter which makes you able to know what's best for the rest of us.
marco rubio. you see them as three-dimensional figures. >> sure. >> seth: it's like the matrix for us, just ones and zeros. like they just walk -- we just, like, in this zone where we see them for truth or lies. it's weird. >> that's amazing. >> seth: yeah. we just process it at a totally different level. >> just even while you're eating your omelettes in a diner, you think, "i know he's going to shake my hand, but i can make a decision on behalf of the rest of the country here." [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, absolutely. the other thing is that -- which it's so great to be in new hampshire, i lived there. my parents are there. i love my parents. >> yeah. >> seth: it's great to be in new hampshire, not now. >> right. >> seth: not this time of year. >> yeah, sure. >> seth: like, if my parents called and said, "we really need you to come home." i'd be like, "i'll wait. i'll come in march." [ laughter ] i'm not coming. >> yeah. >> seth: it's like slush. it's awful. >> yeah. and also, well it's just now, every four years, you don't want to be filling up your car and have governor kasich say, "hey, nice to meet you, friend." >> seth: yeah. >> "please, please don't let me use my matrix-like vision on you, kasich." >> seth: you now -- congratulations. your show is back. >> yeah. >> seth: season three, well done. >> season three, thank you.
thank you. >> seth: you had said that you weren't going to talk about the 2016 election until 2016. >> yeah. >> seth: now that it's here, how will your show address what's going on? >> i think we'll probably look more at the process of the election than the personalities involved. so, i think that's what we'll probably do over the year rather than so much here looking at governor kasich and his traveling band of defeatist maniacs. [ laughter ] >> seth: now, this has been a contentious campaign, but you believe what you have in england with the prime minister once a week basically has to face everybody. >> yeah. yeah, so you're probably not aware of this. there's something called "prime minister's questions" in england. and what it means is, once a week, the prime minister has to go to parliament and be shouted at for half an hour. >> seth: they have to do it. >> you just gotta do it. doesn't matter what is happening. doesn't matter if the country's at war. you stand there for half an hour and you let people heckle you like you're in a low-range comedy club. [ laughter ]
[ laughter ] yeah. so, you will be the most powerful person in england, and yet you must basically stand heckles from people. i think you might like it. for office here -- >> seth: yeah. >> -- in america which is nice, but it's even nicer to shout at the person you're annoyed at. [ laughter ] prim minister, you're allowed to shout back? >> sure. yeah, you can do -- you can do the foot down. >> seth: so it's just shouting. >> you have to understand, british people are so repressed, it's best to have just half an hour in a week where we just explode at each other. [ shouting ] [ laughter ] "shame on you! shame on you!" oh, i'm dreadfully sorry. please carry on." [ laughter ] that's it. we're like emotional volcanoes. we erupt on the clock for 30 minutes, and then we put that [ bleep ] back. [ laughter ] >> seth: and then just have to go about your week. >> then we just go about our week. exactly, yeah. >> seth: one of the things that happens with your show, which is so fantastic, is -- the show's fantastic, but people frame it on monday. your clips are out, and a lot of
"john oliver eviscerates." >> yeah. "john oliver destroys." people are dramatic with their headlines. do you try to go out and eviscerate and destroy? is that your game. >> no, not really, no. we -- primarily the game is entertainment rather than evisceration of any kind. it's odd, it's odd. it's very nice. like, our show gets passed around on monday and through the week. but, the packaging of it is slightly dispiriting to watch when someone is just screaming, "look watch john oliver disembowel tables!" [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> "he literally takes a leg off, eats it! that table is no more! the system is crushed!" sure. or i made a joke for 15 minutes about a thing. [ laughter ] which i guess that's less appealing. >> seth: yeah, that's true. i guess they have to package it with eviscerations. >> again, that's it. the internet is basically like a boxing trainer for us. >> seth: yeah. >> just saying what we're going to do to someone just saying what we're going to do to someone. >> seth: i'm lucky i know you because i feel the people that read these evisceration
just walk around all day just destroying and ripping out people's guts. [ laughter ] >> yeah, i do not have wolverine claws or, indeed, muscles. [ laughter ] i also donon have standard wolverine upper body strength without the claws. >> seth: you're not even close to wolverine or a wolverine. >> i'm not a body on which you could build a wolverine. [ laughter ] >> seth: but thank you so much for being here. [ cheers and applause ] >> you're welcome. >> seth: congrats on season three. >> it's a pleasure. >> seth: always a pleasure. john oliver, everybody. third season of "last week tonight" premieres sunday on hbo. we'll be back with more

[ laughter ] and then i got out and i was like, "he's fine, he's dead but he's fine." [ laughter ] and then a man drove by and he was like, "y'all kill a deer?" and we were just like, "yeah. yes, we did." and he was like, "if you ask they'll cut the antlers off for ya."

little hollywood like showbiz excitement and be like, "oh, really?" and so i always like loved thinking of her kind of imagining what i was doing and so that's kind of what this is. so basically darby works in a fabric store and she kind of has little daydreams. so in this clip she's met some kind of like punk rock girls and she's imagining what it would be like if she was a little rock chick. >> seth: all right. let's take a look. >> i rip [ bleep ] up. you know, i divorced my parents. you know how people do that. i don't love to hang out with my mom. she's respected me and encouraged me in like everything i've done but i don't care. i like to sing. i like to party. what's up [ bleep ] we bout to party get ready you little smarty this is nasty it's gonna suck but we don't care and we don't give
